Finally an Update

[ 00:00 – 04:00 hrs ] After much absence, this site is now updated
again. I have generated some new scripts that will help me keep things
more up to date. You will notice that the articles are now
different. Each one appears on its own page (as it moves off the index
page) and you can link to it with the permanent link at the bottom of
the article. The gallery section has been replaced by a photo album
feature. The photo albums are generated automatically so it should be
easier to keep new pictures on the site. The good news is there are a
bunch of new pictures, the bad news is that
the quality is limited to what the photo processor gave me on the
photo disk.

*News About Hailey* On Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday we were in Houston
for an appointment with a Pediatric Neurological Surgeon, or
children’s brain surgeon. We went to see this doctor because we needed
him to refer us to his colleague, perhaps the last Pediatric
Neurologist who specializes in Epilepsy in the state of Texas. The
doctor we saw on Tuesday suggested putting Hailey on Phenobarbital to
control the different types of seizures that he believes she is
having.

This doctor’s office consulted with his colleague, and after three
days, they have decided that Hailey should take part in his
study. They should call us back within two weeks to arrange the
time. This study will take place in Houston. During the study Hailey
will stay in the hospital and will be monitored by CCTV and EEG to
help determine what exactly is going on in her head.

Hailey has been on the Phenobarbital, the drug of choice for infants
with her condition, for only two day, but she already seems like a
different baby. It doesn’t seem like it is possible for a drug to work
this fast at changing her behavior but, she spends more time playing
and talking and less time fussing, than she did before.

As of Tuesday Hailey weighed 10 lbs. 6 oz

[ 12:00 hrs ] Brianna is off helping Tina with her dance squad, so I
can think of nothing better to do than post a picture of Brianna with
the Easter Bunny. This is from around 2001, I think.
